    Thanks guys.

    Hi Julian... they don't appear very often. They were certainly a limited run.

    How many were made, why they were made has a certain shroud of mystery around it. Some say Micro Sieki had a big hand in it and it's alledged that it was a big part. The team that designed it were fired from Trio/Kenwood in 1983. LOL... Wonder if the project nearly bust the company?

    Mine is a UK model and again, a very limited run were made for the UK.

    Hi Stuart.

    I couldn't resist it... Lol

    It was a good price so I thought I'd just go for it.

    No its not my friends one but he put me in touch with the seller initially.

    Its in fab condition, has a couple of teeny bits here and there from its 40 years on this earth. Nothing remotely worth worrying about.

    Where ever its been its been really well looked after.

    Hi grant, they don't come up very often and most do now need some TLC which is why I got this one done as soon as I could.

    The chassis is made from a crazy material which is dead. Think of it like concrete so you need to take care when moving it.

    Its very heavy too. Weighing in at 35kg. And the tonearm assembly weighs 3kg. The control unit is 4kg.

    Congrats Josie, that's one hell of a turntable and a thing of consummate engineering beauty. Probably one of only 2 turntables I'd consider if I hadn't got the Bergmann Sindre.

    Many happy hours of listening pleasure awaits!

    That does indeed look superb! The L-07D is one of the few decks left on my list of turntables I want to try. It'll happen one day...

    Definitely an end game turntable.

On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    Perhaps a bit too early to ask, but I'll ask anyway Josie - how does the Trio compare in sound quality to the Thorens 124?

    I would be interested in your findings.
